||Approx. 10 miles
||Beginner to Advanced
(depending on chosen trail)
||There are a variety
of trails through diverse terrain, some smooth and flat with wide turns,
and some with steep downhills and tight turns. The trails are full of
logs, rocks, stumps and roots. You'll also find water crossing, a ramp
over a small ravine (on the east side of the creek) and a suspended bridge
that can be slippery when wet. There's a side trail on the east side of
the creek that reads "CAUTION", and it's there for a reason.
The trail is really difficult. Also, the loop trail on the east side of
the creek is meant to be ridden by following the arrows clockwise.
